Lazarex Cancer Foundation Lazarex Cancer Foundation improves patient access to cancer clinical trials.
At Lazarex Cancer Foundation we improve the outcome of cancer care, giving hope, dignity and life to advanced stage cancer patients and the medically underserved by providing assistance with costs for FDA clinical trial participation, identification of clinical trial options, community outreach and education. Vision The vision of Lazarex Cancer Foundation is that everyone affected by cancer will have hope, dignity, support and the most advanced treatments made available to them at all stages of their journey.
(22)

What We Do We provide resources for cancer patients who have been told they have no other options, but who are not yet done with their journey in life and refuse to give up. We help patients of all ages and walks of life, with all forms of cancer. We help patients take advantage of medical breakthroughs today, because they may not have a tomorrow. We believe that the size of a patient's checkbook should not stand between them and the choices they make or the treatments they need. We present clinical trials as an alternative to hospice care for those who want to remain engaged in their fight against cancer. We aspire to improve cancer survival rates through screenings and early detection, with a focus on the medically underserved to address health disparities.

Mission: At Lazarex Cancer Foundation we improve patient access to cancer clinical trials.

Yvette Jives wants to help doctors be aware of the unconscious bias we all possess because she knows that if they can acknowledge that, they can be more open to what their patients are saying to them, and hopefully not brush off symptoms that are too often easily dismissed, especially among women of color. #survivorstories #cancersurvivor

National Minority Health Month: the importance of diversity in clinical trials -

Responses to drugs and treatments differ tremendously depending on a person's genetic makeup. An absence of a certain ethnic or racial group has a huge impact when it comes to creating new drugs and treatments. #NationalMinortyHealthMonth

Most conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. However, background and identity can make access to treatment more difficult. National Minority Health Month aims raise awareness about health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minority populations

Had a great time today running the #Lazarex544K in my neighborhood - I even made my own shirt!
Great publicity on the PBS Newshour tonight ! Bless you all !
Those who are fortunate to survive cancer often deal with a new set of challenges. Actor Sterling Brown sits down with cancer patients to discuss overcoming barriers. Click on the link below to watch the video.
Big thank you to Erin & Tami for being on my podcast today (Your Weekly Dose) - Had a great time with two lovely ladies who do awesome work. Any time you need us to promote something we are here for you two!
A very special Mahalo to Lazarex for helping me attend clinical trials with my lung cancer. The six months of treatments put my tumors into remission. As of my last CT scan I am cancer free. I can not express my appreciation to you and the teams for giving me hope and my life back. Bless you all. It is now five years that I have lived after the treatments. I am not sure I could of attended the trials if not for Lazarex.
